One way to keep your hair from looking flat is to create a quiff, even if you have short hair. With a hair gel with medium or firm hold, you can create a bit of height on top of your head and keep your quiff in place.

If you have slightly longer hair, instead of creating a quiff with height, you can make one that’s brushed toward the back. Just put hair gel or hair wax on your palms and finger-comb your hair backward without pressing your hair so it won’t get flat. This way, you’ll be able to create a modern quiff that’s versatile and can suit any outfit.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair in place with Axe Ice Chill Pomade. It gives your hair a firm hold but it’s easy to wash at the end of the day. 

5. Voluminous Pompadour

Another way to style your hair with a long top is to play up its volume. Create this ‘do by rolling your hair upwards while blow-drying. Once you get the pompadour shape that you like, finish by putting pomade on your fingers and running them through your hair. Easy, right?

Editor’s tip: Got falling hair? Try Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It prevents breakage due to weak and brittle strands, so your hair can grow uninterrupted by hair fall. 

6. Modern Crew Cut

The faux hawk is a toned-down version of the mohawk hairstyle. It still has shorter sides and long top, but not long enough to be styled into a pompadour. To create the faux hawk, finger-comb your hair upwards while applying putty or pomade to create a spiky ‘do.

9. Short Textured Hair

Even with clean cut hair, there’s still a way for you to have that slightly tousled hair with this textured cut. With a longer top and shorter sides, this textured and tousled hair combines a slicked-back and messy look perfectly.

Editor’s tip: Keep your scalp from flaking by using Dove Men + Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Infused with caffeine and AD Zinc, it helps eliminate dandruff while improving your scalp’s health. It also helps make your hair strong and healthy-looking.
